Join us from 22 July to 22 October 2021 and swim the distance of the English Channel towards a healthier you. 

22 miles. 12 weeks. One life-changing challenge. It may have started, but we'd still love for you to join the team. 

Why take part in Swim22? 

Whether you want to start regular exercise, lose weight or simply reignite your love of swimming, Swim22 is a fantastic way of getting fit whilst raising vital funds for our charity.

With three distances to choose from, you can take the challenge at your own pace, in your own local pool over three months - individually or as a team:

  • 11 miles: ‘The Half’ - half the distance to France, still an impressive feat.
  • 22 miles: ‘The Full’ - the distance of the English Channel, our most popular choice.
  • 44 miles: ‘The Double’ - to France and back, for the more adventurous.

Whichever distance you choose, there’s no better feeling than diving into a challenge you’ll love, knowing each length you complete will lead to a healthier you and a better future for people affected by diabetes.
